  1. Remember Beverly as she always had a smile on her face. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

  2. What a wonderful lady!!!! She did so many remarkable things that will have lasting value in the Kingdom of God. I guess her greatest vision was to start a Baptist Church in her home. It has later become the Roanoke Baptist Church. Bible studies in the Welsh Nursing Home were another remarkable activity—-confined to a wheelchair and still teaching God's word. Praying for all of you as you say your earthly goodbyes.

  3. THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS WITH SYMPATHY ARE SENT TO THE CRIDER FAMILY. MRS. CRIDER WAS ALWAYS A JOY TO VISIT WITH BEING SO PLEASANT AND KIND.

  4. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Mrs. Crider. She was a wonderful person and such a joy to visit with. She did so many wonderful things for those around her. She will be deeply missed.

  5. She was my favorite Director of Nurses for many years at Welsh General Hospital. I shall never forget her Kindnesses, Skills, Patience, Professionalism, and human understanding. We had many pleasurable reunions together after retirement. Rest in peace, Ms. Crider.
